Detailed Description

At Yarn Barn, we love a good overshot design. This one combines some beautiful curves with a manageable treadling sequence. With overshot, you are weaving with two shuttles. One carries a fine weft that makes a plain weave ground cloth and the other holds a heavier supplemental weft that creates the decorative pattern. Together, they make a lovely fabric that has some weight--perfect for setting fragile glassware to drain or wiping dry a big sheet cake pan. The warp is 8/2 unmercerized cotton sett at 16 epi. This is also the tabby weft. The pattern weft is 5/2 Perle Cotton. The kit makes 3 hemmed towels with finished measurements of 13.5" x 20". The towels can be machine washed and dried.

You will need:

  • 16.7 weaving width
  • 4 harnesses
  • 8-dent reed
  • 265 heddles
  • 2 boat shuttles and bobbins

We wove our towels using 8/2B cotton in 100 Natural and 5/2 Perle Cotton in 119 Hummingbird. If you would like to make your towels in the same colors, simply order the kit above. If you would like to choose your own colors, please see our 8/2B cotton and 5/2 perle page to see the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and tell us your two color choices in the box above.
